Yezinka is a unique creature, stalking the wilderness of central Michigan.
Yezinka is an extremely large humanoid that appears to have elongated arms and torso.
Yezinka is a solitary and stealthy creature, haunting the central region of the map. During each game only one such creature exists and, unlike the Merga Wraith, roams the map. Because of that, it is possible for it to be killed by the other creatures before the player has a chance to meet it.
Yezinka is obsessed with stalking humanoids for their eyes. To fulfill this need, it will try to ambush the character at night while asleep. It is also attracted to the Jar of Screaming Eyes.
Yezinka will try to escape from the player when approached and will hurl stones or attack when in melee range. The most debilitating attack involves stealing(plucking out) the target's eyes. The range of this technique is within melee range and close contact should always be avoided when possible.
Somehow managing to kill Yezinka after it escapes with the player's eyes will not make them regain their vision.
If the player's eyes got plucked, they will receive a permanent "Blind" & "No Eyes" condition. In this state, they can only see their own hex and move 1 hex per turn while battles are limited to within melee range. Similarly to moving around in the complete darkness of night, this renders the player completely vulnerable to attacks and they will most likely not survive long.
However, if they're rich/lucky enough and can gain access to the Detroit Megacity, they may try to make it to Haggerty Health Clinic and purchase the Artificial Eye Replacement augmentation to restore their vision. This will cost $5600.
It's possible for the player to get his eyes stolen for the second time if they encounter Yezinka again and is not careful.
- The creature's design and behavior is loosely based on the creatures from the Czech folk tale called "Grandfather's Eyes: The story of three wicked Yezinkas".
